Potato Fry | Urulai Varuval | Accompaniment for rice

Potato Fry, a simple yet delicious accompaniment for rice. Though i already have few potato fry recipes in my blog, unlike those recipes, it doesn't require cooking of potatoes ahead. So whenever i forget to cook the potatoes along with dal, i used to make this delicious potato fry as an accompaniment for our lunch.
For this potato fry recipe, i highly recommend to use non-stick pan. Since the potato is raw, it sticks to the bottom of the pan easily while cooking, so non-stick pan helps to make this fry with much less oil, otherwise to avoid sticking and burning at the bottom, you may need little extra oil. Other than that, it's a super easy recipe and your potato fry would be ready in few mins. It tastes great with all kind of south indian meal, but my personal favorite is with bisi bele bath or with sambar and rice. If i make potato curry for kara kuzhambu, then i would prefer the potato podimas
